Train in the morning light
How about 1880's impressionism?
On saturday I drove by downtown Apex passed the train station. This set of box cars was sitting there. Two engines were stopped further up the line, not connected.
I parked my Jeep, got out and took a walk around. I think trains are really neat looking. they are so big. I liked how the morning light made strong shadows on the cars.
This study is mixed media (paint, pastel and colored pencil). I dub it postmodern impressionism.

It's lovely! Great energy and I love the complementary color scheme.
Wonderful illo and description!
It's funny how 'realism' (which seems to be what every young artist looks at as the be all and end all of art) can loose its appeal after delving in such styles...very nicely rendered...
Magnificent, he is compatible with my style and pleasure
Great image, lovely mood, like the fact you did 1880s as well.
Great colours.. nice work!
